Description of book
Section One – What’s happening Lord?
The focus of this section is on how God could be using our employment situation to bring about changes to ourselves and to our relationship with Him.
Often, God won’t release us into the next stage of His plans until we are ready.
Over seven chapters we shall see how God can use a ‘career wilderness’ – a period of hardship such as unemployment – to mold us and to draw us deeper into His love. When we’re ready God wil open doors!
Section Two – Receiving God’s Revelation
The second section contains nine chapters, and explores how God can reveal His plans concerning our lives and especially our jobs. In particular we discover how God brings revelation through His word and by the power of the Holy Spirit.
This section also looks at how He can guide us regarding our jobs specifically through our innate abilities, personality, deeply held desires and also through the advice that we receive from people around us.
We will also look at some factors that can prevent us from receiving this revelation for our job situation and what we can do to stay ‘in tune’ with God’s guiding voice.
Section Three – Practical Careers Advice
If we are unemployed or wishing to change our current role, the challenges surrounding employment can provide us with many opportunities to step out and demonstrate our faith in God.
